Florida’s Boyce Avenue are part of the millennial wave of artists who have used the Internet, rather than extensive touring, to get their music out to the masses. Consisting of brothers Alejandro, Fabian, and Daniel Manzano, the trio started making music together when Daniel returned to Florida after graduating from Harvard Law School. The brothers showcased their emotive, radio-friendly alt-rock on YouTube with a series of videos of them performing acoustic versions of their own songs as well as covers. In 2013, they joined the American version of The X Factor television series as vocal coaches and released the concert album Live in Los Angeles. By that same year, they had hit one billion views on YouTube, amassing millions of subscribers in the process. Their No Limits EP followed in 2014. In 2016, they released their 15th EP of cover songs, Cover Sessions, Vol. 2, which featured their takes on hits by Sam Smith, Adele, and Ed Sheeran, and even the Game of Thrones theme offered up with Spanish acoustic flair.
Fittingly, on their fifth full-length album, The Last Hero, hard rock juggernaut Alter Bridge pursue a level of excellence inspired by timeless heroism. Making the record became something of a personal quest for the quartet—Myles Kennedy [vocals, guitar], Mark Tremonti [guitar, vocals], Brian Marshall [bass], and Scott Phillips [drums]. In 2013, the band reached an elevated creative and critical milestone with Fortress. It bowed at #12 on the Billboard Top 200, moving over 30,000 copies first-week and earning unanimous tastemaker praise. The record garnered perfect scores from Total Guitar and KERRANG! as well as acclaim from Billboard, The Guardian, Loudwire, Ultimate Guitar, and many more. In between sold out tours in Europe and North America, the guys appeared on VH1 and graced the cover of Classic Rock Magazine who labeled Fortress, “The best thing they’ve ever done,” while Eddie Trunk called it, “A top 10 album of the last 10 years.” When it came time to write new music, the musicians collectively raised the bar yet again for The Last Hero. Ultimately, Alter Bridge heroically deliver for fans worldwide and rock music at large.

Circa Survive with: mewithoutYOU & TURNOVER
Philadelphia’s Circa Survive was formed by former Saosin vocalist Anthony Green with guitarist Colin Frangicetto — both of them veterans of the local emo and hardcore scenes looking to indulge in the rule-breaking freedom of the neo-progressive movement of the mid-2000s. Circa Survive recorded an album, Juturna (named after a Roman goddess), for Equal Vision Records in 2005. Lots of touring followed, including Warped Tour dates, and the album steadily sold an impressive 100,000 copies. A spot at the 2007 Coachella Festival paved the way for the late May release of Circa Survive’s follow-up, On Letting Go, which cracked the Top 40 of the Billboard Top 200. The band eventually left Equal Vision to sign with Atlantic, and in 2010 released its third album, Blue Sky Noise, which eschewed many of the hardcore elements of records past in favor of a more melodic, indie rock approach. (No surprise that the album charted quite high, almost making the Top Ten.) The band’s fourth long-player, the self-released Violent Waves, arrived in 2012 and debuted at the number 15 slot on the album charts. After its release, Circa Survive signed to Sumerian, which reissued a deluxe edition of Violent Waves and then released the band’s fifth album, Descensus, in November 2014. Touring in 2015 and 16 celebrated the Tenth Anniversary of their first album Juturna.
Melodic post-grunge outfit Pop Evil formed in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The band developed a sound and performance style that took cues from the likes of Kiss, Soundgarden, and Pearl Jam that aptly put them right in line with popular modern rock acts such as Crossfade, Shinedown, and Puddle of Mudd. The band released its debut independent album, War of the Roses before signing with Universal/Republic imprint Pazzo, who reissued their sophomore LP Lipstick on the Mirror. The album featured three singles that hit Billboard’s Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart, including the Top Ten “100 in a 55.” The band enjoyed greater success with the E1 label, beginning with War of Angels and Onyx, both of which peaked around number 40 on the Billboard 200. Up, their fifth album was considered to be their best release yet.
For someone like City and Colour’s Dallas Green, it’s hard to imagine that there’s much left to search for – he’s traversed the globe on tour, released numerous albums (one most recently as You+Me with Alecia Moore, aka P!nk) and collected scores of accolades. Though Green is a musician, he doesn’t make a show of things: that’s the songs’ job. Thus he’s done this all quietly, intentionally, still looking for the next answer or dog-eared chapter each record holds. And now he once again uncovered something new: a certain kind of family in his bandmates. Even more pivotal was trying to capture the essence of their live show symbiosis in the studio; which comes through with an undeniable force. For a project that was very much about the inner world of Green, these relationships have morphed City and Colour into something with more emotive power than ever before: the layers go beyond just music and lyrics, into the people creating the songs themselves.
City and Colour have released two new songs, “Peaceful Road” and “Rain”. The two never-before released tracks were cut in Nashville during recording sessions for his #1 album, If I Should Go Before You. The Peaceful Road/Rain EP is available via Dine Alone Records and is currently on Apple Music.

Everyone knows that the very best music can meddle with your mind, plunging you into the opposite extremes of both happiness and sadness all at once, in intense three minute bursts. It can transport you temporarily to a realm where anything is possible and nothing is out of reach. The latest key holders to that illusive turf are New Zealand’s The Naked And Famous (TNAF). This indie electronic ensemble makes driving, melodic pop with an ’80s post-punk influence that are centered around the talents of vocalist Alisa Xayalith and instrumentalist/vocalist Thom Powers. These young Aucklanders have at their disposal a seemingly effortless ability to capture the giddy fun and relentless hooks one has come to expect from the very best electro-pop, while at the same time striving for something grander, more brooding and atmospheric. But anyone who’s witnessed TNAF emerge from what they like to call their natural studio habitat to step onstage – where their songs become a truly enveloping experience – will testify to the sheer epic proportions.
At the age of 8, Jacob started taking acting lessons and began pursuing roles in community theater year-round. The multi-talented entertainer quickly realized his passion for making people laugh and smile and brought his positive energy online, turning social platforms into stages and amassing a highly engaged and super active audience of online supporters. Jacob initially generated massive buzz online in 2015. His first official Vine post—an anti-bullying message—would eventually be looped 15 million times. As he conquered Vine, he began to build a following on Instagram and Twitter. His unwavering commitment to delivering honest and heartfelt content has catapulted him to the “5th most engaged user on Twitter” and “one of the most engaged accounts globally on Instagram.” He also has become one of the most trafficked personalities on Musical.ly. In just one year, he added 6.4 million Instagram followers, he became a “Top 5 profile” on Musical.ly with 12 million followers and he added 1.8 million subscribers on his YouTube channel. In addition to creating a flood of viral content and hosting unforgettable meet-n-greets with his supporters, Jacob has been spending time exploring one of his biggest passions: music.
After the successful release of his first-ever, original song, “Sweatshirt,” which catapulted to Top 5 on iTunes Overall Top Songs chart and received an RIAA Gold plaque, Jacob released “Hit Or Miss.” It entered the Hot 100 at #72, went Top 10 on the iTunes Overall Top Songs chart and has accumulated 10.6 million-plus Spotify streams. In early October, Jacob released his third single “All My Friends” which reached #4 on the iTunes Pop Charts and #9 on the Overall Top Songs chart. It has since amassed over 2 million streams on Spotify and nearly 7 million views on YouTube. Continuing to explore music is the next natural step for Jacob as he continues to progress as a pop culture presence, while speaking to a phenomenal demand for content of all kinds.
From the days of playing greasy local juke joints to headlining major festivals, JJ Grey remains an unfettered, blissful performer, singing with a blue-collared spirit over the bone-deep grooves of his compositions. His presence before an audience is something startling and immediate, at times a funk rave-up, other times a sort of mass-absolution for the mortal weaknesses that make him and his audience human. When you see JJ Grey and his band Mofro live—and you truly, absolutely must—the man is fearless. Onstage, Grey delivers his songs with compassion and a relentless honesty that captures the fierceness and intimacy that defines a Grey performance. Grey and his current Mofro lineup offer grace and groove in equal measure, with an easygoing quality that makes those beautiful muscular drum-breaks sound as though the band has set up in your living room.
